Nu är det snart dags att ta upp båten för vinterförvaring, men först skall vi fånga hummer. Hummerpremiär infaller den första måndagen efter den 20 september, kl 07:00. När jag var liten var det den 15 september på min födelsedag. Hade jag tur fick jag hummer till kvällsmaten den dagen.

If I was lucky I would have lobster for supper that day. … Continue readingLobster premier
